My sweet friend Gina gave me this wonderful old homemaking guide. It has a nice stamped leather cover and it's in great condition.
The inside is tabbed so you can quickly reference any topic on homemaking imaginable. It is amazing to see how much effort and importance was placed on these skills in the past. A Martha Stewart life (minus the empire and hopefully the jail time) was expected of a well-trained young lady. I'm not so naive as to think that all women achieved such a level of ability, but I'm sure many did. It's fun to read books like this and get a glimpse into the past.
